In particular, chapter I presents and discusses international experience with policies and measures to promote energy efficiency in buildings and chapter II offers some guidelines for future initiatives on prioritising targets, choosing types of policies, and designing mechanisms. The report focuses on the building itself, its envelope, and major equipment for space conditioning (i.e., heating and cooling) and ventilation.
